Remarks & Notes 
Every once in awhile a wild ass extra would run from the CTH&SE Division out of Indiana of all coal for the University of Wisconsin......this was when common sense still prevailed before the commies took ahold of it....anyway....coal was used to power everything at UW...normally about 40 cars a day came up on 69 later 247 and 401.....20 cars for UW and 20 for the paper companies at Nakoosa. But every so often the University would get a train load 100 cars to stock pile down at Madison......THIS is a photo of one of those trains taht would be handled down the branch in 20 car units for the university.........it's about to hit the westbound detector at HY P. the read out was at the Portage Depot.
